Top Three Thursdays #24 – Genres I Avoid

Hello and welcome! This is my weekly series, Top Three Thursdays, or, for convenience, TTT. Every week I discuss my top three in any bookish topic. If you’d like to participate, write up a post on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments below.

The topic for today (2/11/17) is: Genres I Don’t Prefer to Read

‘Tis the season of Halloween and pumpkin lanterns have taken over my social media feeds. However, it is not my cup of tea. Today I’m going to tell you about the kind of books that I prefer to pass over. But before you proceed, I’d just like to make it explicitly clear that just because I don’t like certain topics in books doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to like them or that I’m deriding your interests. If you’re not a fan of whatever I like to read, that is perfectly fine as well. Please remember that everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Top Three Thursdays #23 – Feminist Books on My TBR

Hello and welcome! This is my weekly series, Top Three Thursdays, or, for convenience, TTT. Every week I discuss my top three in any bookish topic. If you’d like to participate, write up a post on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments below.

The topic for today (26/10/17) is: Feminist Books on My TBR

For those of you who are new, I’ve briefly mentioned my association with feminism in my previous blog, which can be found here. As it is a topic that I have strong notions about, it is but natural to want to read books that deal with it. I plan to get to them soon because I want to make a recommendation post on this where I also want to talk about feminism in depth, so keep an eye out for that (if that’s something you would be interested in) and hold me to my promise of reading them by the year end.

The topic for today (28/09/17) is: Ways to Improve My Reading Life

It is a universally acknowledged fact that there is no such thing as too many books. As bookworms, we struggle with trying to scale that TBR mountain, find enough bookshelf space and make more time to read. Here are three ways that I’ve come up with to improve my reading life.

The topic for today (10/08/17) is: Favourite Book Bloggers

Now that I’ve dived headlong into this community, my most recent follows have been book blogs rather than writing/author blogs. There are some who stand out in mind either because of how successful, helpful or unique they are. If you’re a book blogger happening to read this and don’t see your name up here, don’t hurl brickbats at me. I must really love a blog to follow it and if I follow you, you are all shades of amazing. The ones on this list are basically how I want this blog to be in five years’ time and they are an inspiration to me. Without further ado, let’s just get to the list.

The topic for today (03/08/17) is: Authors Whose Books I’ve Read the Most

I got the idea for this from a post over on Thrice Read – Top Ten Monday | Authors I’ve Read the Most Books From. Naturally, I worried myself sick as to how I would compile the list until I found a nifty feature called ‘Most Read Authors’ over on Goodreads. It is on the sidebar to the left once you click on the ‘My Books’ tab after signing in. After I discovered this on my own, I realised that the post by Caitlynn on Thrice Read does have the instructions on where to find it and I felt really stupid. Let’s gloss over that bit and get into the post now, yeah?

Top Three Thursdays #19 – Tropes I’m Tired Of

The topic for today (20/07/17) is: Tropes I’m Tired Of

I mostly read young adult fiction and am comfortable with middle grade as well as children’s books, occasionally venturing into new adult or adult books. YA is infamously known for its clichés and I’ve read enough to grow tired of a few of them to the point where I’ve stopped picking up books that seem to give such vibes from their description. Here are the top three tropes I don’t want to see more of.

Top Three Thursdays #18 – Favourite Books with a PoC MC

The topic for today (13/07/17) is: Favourite Books I’ve Read That Feature a PoC MC

I feel like I don’t talk about diversity enough on my blog. Being a Person of Colour myself, I’m always looking for good representation of people like me and just non-white persons in general. This is a collection of amazing books that I’ve read this year featuring a PoC as the main character. Two of them are popular and have received a ton of hype, but one is more of a hidden gem. Without further ado, let me get to my list.
